Iron Fist: The Living Weapon Issue 1
I picked up this comic because of a few reasons. One being because I'm fairly new to the Marvel scene. Two, I do not like starting off in the middle of stories, and three is that this was a recommended reading. And let me say that I am glad that the Iron Fist was created.
I picked up the second printing of this comic and I am fairly impressed by the cover art! I mean who knew a White male with a bandana covering half of his face could be so initimidating, but the artist truely drew out the feel of the Iron fist, and I didn't even know who he was yet! After I was done drooling over the front page, I decided to dive into the first page. "I'm diggin' this already." As you go on to read about his back story, you get a feel for his dark demenor of his soul. The panels flip back and fourth from a classic display of story to a modern dark expression of the character attitude. It draws you in deeper and deeper until the action comes breaking out of a glass window. Literally! As this man craves the fight, he unleashes a wild tempest of limbs and chi! This action scene does not make you think he is just a mear man, but a weapon of death and fury!
As the action slows down, the adreneline decline is met with some comedy and some back story, and with a dramatic cliff hanger; well fall i should say, the issue comes to an end. Thus leaving me in a dazed state wondering why the pages stopped turning!
So to sum it all up!
